Lot's of old stores with a variety of maritime stuff - ok for an afternoon walk and a variety of seafood resturants. Make sure to walk thru the park and view the bridge and waterfront.

This was our second time to the Historic Bayfront. One of the best parts of our first visit we were able to watch over 15 sea lions play on the docks. The smell permeating from an adjacent building was overpowering and nauseating. We couldn't stay long. This second trip we still experienced the awful smell, but no sea lions. It was disappointing. I couldn't imagine trying to eat in any of the restaurants around this area. The shops are overpriced, but I imagine having a storefront on the bay is expensive rent.

The Bayfront in Newport is a must do if you are in town. Wide sidewalks that accommodate groups of people. There are benches for resting and many stores have bowls of water outside for your four legged family members. Many excellent shops and restaurants. You can take a rest and watch the sea lions on the docks by the undersea gardens. Watching people fish and crab from the docks is a neat experience as well.

My Down syndrome son went to coast with his caregivers. He was excited about the attractions on the bay front and excited about the crab he was going to eat at Rae Rae's Restaurant. The weird woman working there was border line abuse to him. Banging dishes, swearing, at very verbally rude. After all of that she demanded a tip. She scared my son and now that is the only thing he remembers is "the mean lady".

Walking the waterfront in Newport gave us a sense of the sea and some of the people who earn their living from it. The Sea Lions were especially exciting. Being able to see the huge fishing nets that are used by the Fishermen was a unique experience. We appreciate even more the work that goes into getting fish from the sea to the table for food.
